COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
* McNELLIE’S PUB ALE Inspired by the house ales found in the pubs of Great Britain and Ireland, McNellie’s Pub Ale is a traditional ale brewed in the style of a Best Bitter. Various maltings of two-row barley are joined with American Glacier hops to give this beer its color, complexity, and a bit of a New World twist. The Old World character present in this ale is largely influenced by its yeast, which originates in the port city of Hull, East Yorkshire, England.

Draft at McNellie’s in downtown Tulsa. Pours a cloudy amber color with a frothy off-white head that laces the glass. Aroma of biscuity malts, earthy hops, yeast, mild spices, and a little toffee. Flavor of biscuity malts, leafy hops, mild spices, and toasted sugar. Medium-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and soft carbonation. I initially thought this might be called an ’Irish ale’- it isn’t really what I’ve experienced before in a bitter, but that could also be my lack of experience with the style.

12 ounce bottle. Pour is copper red with a lightly carbonated head with lots of fizzy carbonation. Very little aroma from this beer, what aroma is there is faint citrus hops and a little bit of caramel malt. Some banana yeast that reminds me of a weak Belgian. Taste is caramel floral hops with a very bitter finish. Some Belgian characteristics come through in the yeast, though it’s not as ethereal as those styles of beer. Kind of like an English Bitter made with American hops and yeast. It’s okay.

I went to a pizzeria, I ordered a slice of pizza, the fucker gave me the smallest slice possible. If the pizza was a pie chart for what people would do if they found a million dollars, the fucker gave me the "donate it to charity" slice. I would like to exchange this for the "keep it!"

Bomber from ericandersnavy. Pours copper with a large clingy white head. Aroma of roast caramel and floral? hop. Medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is mild roast malt with earthy/floral hop. Bitter it is. UK style. Finishes lightly fruity and mildly bitter. Very nice.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2010 Bomber via trade thanks to stephens101 on BA. Pours mostly clear amber with a large, lasting off-white head. Aroma is caramel, earth, floral hops, and...Belgian yeast? Yeah, I’m getting a little bit of that, strangely enough. Is this really a bitter? Flavor is nice and subtle with caramel and biscuit malt, earthiness, and grassy and floral hops. Slightly bitter on the finish. The Belgian yeast notes also appear in the flavor, along with some fruitiness, maybe apple or citrus. Medium body and average carbonation. Nothing special on the mouthfeel really. Definitely a sessionable one, as it is very drinkable (and I don’t know the ABV, but I don’t care, session beer purists). This ain’t half bad for an Oklahoma beer!

Smelled a lot like some kind of Belgium ale, more bananay then hoppy, more fruity the malty, flavor was grain malt and that fruit edge and a very bitter finish,very enjoyable,

Pours a hazy golden brown color with a large off-white head. The aroma is very nice with grassy hop smells as well as some malt. The flavor is malty sweetness with toffee and biscuit malt. There is a nice amount of hop bitterness to balance things out and you also get some spiciness towards the end. Thin-medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Had on tap at Jazmo Bourbon Street in OKC. Pours clear copper with off-white head. Aroma is pale malt, spices and hops. Flavor is pale malts, spices, caramel and some bitter hops. Medium bodied. Sort of between a bitter and english pale. Not to bad.

{Served at McNellie’s, on cask.} Pours a golden, burnt amber color with ruby highlights. A one finger+ head of creamy tan foam. Retention is fairly good. The lacing is great and leaves a ’wall’ almost all the way down the glass. A nice hoppy presence in the nose. Citrus and earthy hops notes are both plentiful. Also, a light touch of caramel toasted malts is here. A mild, but inviting nose. This has a mild, smooth flavor. It also has excellent balance. There is a nice, mild, malt sweetness. It is perfectly balanced by a nice hops kiss. Everything plays well with each other and no one trys to dominate. Medium bodied and very smooooth. A very nice, light creaminess to it. This has a low carbonation level with serves it greatly. This is one super-easy, smooth drinking brew. It has such great balance. The bottled and draft versions are easy enough to drink already. This cask version is a super-session brew. Marshall is kicking ass with the cask ales, definitely! Thank you, Eric & Company.

From the Jug at the GABF Colorado Convention Center, Denver 11/10/2008 Malt aroma. Golden bronze coloured and a little rich on the palate. Some bitterness and smoked malt flavour in the finish.
